Green Dot fees

The Green Dot fee covers the cost of processing light household packaging waste that packers put on the market. This cost depends on consumption trends, the amount of packaging collected and sorted, and the operating costs, less the sale of materials to approved recyclers.

The current fees for household packaging are shown here. This update incorporates annual variables such as the amount of material that is expected to be sold to approved recyclers or the growing number of citizens who are separating their waste, as well as the new obligations imposed by the Spanish regulations on packaging and packaging waste in order to transition towards a circular economy.
